It is important to find out the cause for giddiness. At this age it is not normal. Go for the following tests and get back to me with the results. 1. Cbc - a blood test. This will help us find your hemoglobin levels, because low hb is a common cause for giddiness among youngsters 2. Ear check - chronic ear infections can cause giddiness, visit a ent to rule out the same 3. Eye check - a un diagnosed eye power can be a cause too. For now follow these tips 1. Soak 8 to 10 raisins in a cup of water overnight and consume it the next day in empty stomach. This is a excellent remedy for giddiness. 2. Take 4 tsp of warm coconut oil. Apply to your feet and massage gently for five minutes at bedtime. Do this daily to get a good nights sleep. 3. Avoid looking at bright screens like phones, tabs, laptop etc half an hour before bedtime. Read a book instead. You will definitely sleep well 4. Deep breathing - 10 rounds three times a day will cure both sleeplessness and dizziness.

Hello. Are you asking for your mother/ wife/ daughter? Will have to rule out measles & mumps in children. For sore throat, need to follow the points: - Avoid cold things, fried/ oily food. -Avoid excessive use of voice/ roughly using voice or else shouting. - Gargle with salt and warm water solution thrice daily. - Take Ginger tea. - Avoid excessive cold air or sudden change of temperature (like coming from heat/ sunlight to an A/C room). - Can cover your throat with a stole. Take homoeopathic medications - Schwabe's Kali Mur. 6x and Alpha- CF/ 1 tab. - both thrice a day daily- for 3 days. Revert me back.

I am 36 years old, suffering from snoring problem. My throat become dry n then it chokes I have used nasal strips and many other medicine. But still I can't sleep. What should I do?

MBBS

Snoring occurs due to 1. Obstruction of flow of air through mouth and nose as in obesity, nasal obstruction due to polyp, dns, sinusitis, 2. Alcohol, use of sleeping pill 3. Smoking, consumption of tobacco. 4. It may be due to relaxed throat muscle in elderly and in children due to tonsillitis. 5. Consult ent specialist to exclude nasal causes of snoring 6. Reduce your weight if overweight.

First you have to drink lots of water& juices more for your acidity along with this take avipatti churnam 1spn with warm water once in a day. Sukumaram kashayam 15 ml twice with warm water for 2-3 months. Use anutailam 2-3 drops as nasal drops for 1 week continously. Eat leafy vegetables more.

Thanks for your query. Try to take a spoon or two of honey in the morning as soon as you wake up followed by milk with turmeric. Do salt water gargle as much as you can. Avoid spicy food and irritants. For more details contact me in private section.

This is due to dryness of the mouth, this is because of lack of mucus in the mouth which is protective layer of our mouth, and is being produced in the mouth by glands which will be helped by good and healthy blood supply to the glands, blood with good blood cells will take oxygen to the gland and gland works, they require oxygen in ample of amount, so if you do not take iron diet on daily basis than this will lead to less of mucus production and hence lead to dryness and thick mucus problem, start taking good iron diet on daily basis, and shakes, avoid salty and spicy food.

How to Treat Acute Mastoiditis?

ENT Specialist, Delhi
How to Treat Acute Mastoiditis?

The infection of the bone of the ear is Mastoiditis. This may be an acute infection needing hospitalisation and injectable drugs or may be in the form of slow bone eroding processes like cholesteatoma.

Let us learn more about this condition and its treatment

Understanding the mastoid bone: The mastoid bone is made up of air sacs and it looks a lot like a sponge. In this sense, it is different from the other bones that can be found in the human body. In order to function properly, this bone requires air from the other parts of the ear, including the Eustachain Tube which connects the middle part of the ear with the portion that lies at the back of the throat. If this tube gets infected due to any reason, the infection and bacteria can also travel to the Mastoid bone, leading to an infection in this area. Another form of the infection starts from the ear drum and a slowly progressive bone eroding process starts which spreads into the air sacs and can potentially spread to the brain.

Symptoms: Acute mastoiditis will present with earache, ear discharge and onset of fever and chills, as well as redness and inflammation behind the ear. Pain in the ear may be experienced along with headaches and swelling that may be experienced behind the eyes. At the very earliest sign, these symptoms must be reported to an ENT or ear throat nose specialist so that the treatment can happen at the earliest. Chronic mastoiditis may be due to repeated infections and bone eroding cholesteatoma which presents with repeated episodes of ear discharge which may be foul smelling and may even have blood.

Diagnosis: The diagnosis is mostly made on ear examination and may involve imaging tests like a CT scan as well as an MRI scan of the head and the ear. A simple X-ray of the mastoids can help in detecting the severity of the infection, and it spread.

Treatment: After diagnosing the problem with imaging tests as well as a detailed ear examination, the doctor will usually start the treatment by admitting the patient in the hospital. Antibiotic medication will be administered through intravenous methods, after which oral antibiotics will be prescribed for many days after the patient has been discharged from the hospital. Surgery may be required if the infection has not cleared up even after the use of antibiotics and is also done in cases of bone erosion. This surgery will be done to drain the infected fluid from the ear and remove a part of this Mastoid bone. Complications like facial paralysis and vertigo need to be discussed with the surgeon before the surgery.

This could be due to dryness of throat. Avoid being in ac for long time, as ac absorbs moisture and causes dryness. Keep a bucket of water in ac room in order to maintain moisture. You may take homoeopathic treatment for it.
